On Saturday, April 20, 2013 a person from Mount Pearl, Newfoundland won $56,972.70 on a Proline ticket. It seems like a lot to win on a single Proline ticket right? When you take a look at the games on the ticket and the amount of the bet you will understand why it paid so much. The winning Proline ticket was a 6 game ticket and was combo’d to 5’s, 4’s, and 3’s (Proline Stadium in the Atlantic Provinces has a combo play option). The individual wagered $4 on each ticket (including all the combo tickets) for a total wager of $168.00. Here were the games and his picks.
New York Islanders vs. Winnipeg Jets – TIE
Philadelphia Flyers vs. Carolina Hurricanes – FLYERS
Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Ottawa Senators – LEAFS
Washington Capitals vs. Montreal Canadiens – CAPITALS
Phoenix Coyotes vs. Chicago Blackhawks – TIE
Detroit Red Wings vs. Vancouver Canucks – TIE
As you can see the big Proline winner selected 3 Hockey ties and 3 visiting teams and wagered $168 on what would seem to be a ridiculous ticket (but what do we know). I’m sure the individual was hoping to hit just 3 or 4 of these games (with 1 or 2 ties). Even then they still would have made a good profit because it was a combo ticket. Congratulations to the winner!
